"Bright medium red. Floral perfume of great delicacy. Boasts a wonderfully refined texture but also terrific pungent floral and mineral lift to the intense red berry flavors. Conveys a very strong impression of savory acidity but Barnier insists that the technical numbers are similar to those of the Lavaux and Clos Saint-Jacques. Finishes brisk and palate-staining, with high-toned cranberry and raspberry fruit. I could drink a bottle of this! Barnier noted that this cool combe-influenced vineyard on very shallow soil included a lot of white vines when Jadot bought it from Clair-Daü in 1985 but that Jadot has replaced "most of them." But the site has always produced "a naturally floral style and paler-colored wine," Barnier added. In some past warm vintages that benefited from full ripeness, this wine has outperformed Jadot's Clos Saint-Jacques on my scorecard, at least in the early going, but in 2015 the latter wine is even more stunning." 01/2017

"The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Estournelles Saint-Jacques was showing a bit of reduction on the nose when I tasted the barrel sample. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, well-judged acidity, a slight candied orange peel note towards the finish that fans out with confidence. This is an excellent premier cru like the Lavaux Saint-Jacques, although it should be afforded 4-6 years in bottle. These tasting notes belong under the umbrella of "Louis Jadot", though it should be pointed out that these bottlings are under "Domaine Louis Jadot", that is to say that the company owns the vines rather than through contracts with growers.

"Voluptuous cherry and vanilla nose with splendid fruit supported by stylish oak. Very rich and dense, full-bodied and weighty mouthfeel, a powerful Gevrey with drive and persistence. The tannins are almost tarry and this needs time to open up. Dramatic, structured and long. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035"  02/2017
